Hao has used Ge Liln porcelain of the Song Dynasty as his inspiration, and added it to this Ferrari's design. Only a few hundred pieces of Ge Kiln porcelain exist today, all of which are priceless treasures.

Other special features include a Jade start button and a gold-coloured rev counter with ancient Chinese script Xiao Zhuan. The later is also seen in the Ferrari 599 HGTE China Limted Edition, which has also been launched.

Some of the proceeds raised from the auction will go towards Chinese automotive engineering students.
